After several other Seacoast communities rescheduled their trick or treating because of Hurricane Sandy, Portsmouth Police Chief Stephen DuBois did the same on Saturday.
Portsmouth kids will have to wait until Saturday, Nov. 3. from 5:30 p.m. to 8 p.m. to go trick or treating because of the poor weather forecast to hit the Portsmouth area from Monday through Wednesday from Hurricane Sandy.
DuBois made the announcement on Saturday afternoon. Portsmouth's trick or treating was originally scheduled to take place on Tuesday, Oct. 30.
Meanwhile, Portsmouth Halloween Parade organizers said Saturday during the Pumpkin Smash at the Portsmouth Farmers Market they still plan to hold their event on Wednesday, Oct. 31 (Halloween) at 7 p.m. as scheduled regardless of what remnants of Hurricane Sandy may be around.
